T: the May holiday is coming up soon. Are you planning on going on vacation?
E: I am. I just went to the travel agent’s and picked up these brochures.
T: where are you planning on going?
E: I fancy going to Tibet for a few days. Have you ever been there?
T: I went a long time ago, before they built the new train that can take you there.
E: would you recommend going there for a few days?
T: personally, I think it’d be better to go when you have more time. A few days isn’t really enough to get acclimatize yourself and to go on a few excursions outside of the capital.
E: you’re probably right. What do you think about Yangshuo?
T: it’s a beautiful city, but I think it’s become too touristy. How about going to a cosmopolitan city like Shanghai or Hong Kong?
E: I’d like to get away from the big city life.
T: maybe you should consider going to a hot springs resort outside of Beijing. I heard they are very relaxing.
E: I guess if I only have a few days, I should probably think about going somewhere that isn’t far away.
T: since the May holiday is the high season, you should probably call ahead to reserve a room. Here’s the phone number.
E: thanks; I’ll give them a call later.
